Hey guys this is Reuben with Competition Accessories welcome to our quick review of the HJC IS 33 open face helmet, and this design is really popular because it gives you that open faced feeling plenty of air flow but it gives you a full faced shield for protection from wind rain bugs and things of that nature . Another thing that makes it really popular not only does it have this external face shield , you can also deploy an external sun visor which is great for bright conditions you can drop that down and it is spring loaded and retractable. So in night conditions if you go into a tunnel or something you can always raise that up out of the way , there's basically a slider on the back on the top of the helmet here and if you hit that button its just going to put that up and out of the way so its really convenient you don't have to swap that outer shield back and forth for a tinted version and a clear version for every day , you can however replace the shield and swapping it out is very easy there's basically a trigger on both sides just raise that into the all the way up right position and its just going to pop out just like that and then if you just line it back up and give it a press it clicks that back into place so very easy face shield mechanism very easy to operate . Its a poly carbonate shell it keeps the weight down and its a great value as well you do have your advanced channeling ventilation system basically two ram air scoops on the top of the helmet here they are close able so there are slider switches you can slide those forward you can see they seal up open them up and that's going to allow air to go down inside the helmet . They function kind of like ram air scoops as you ride its going to force air down into the helmet and its actually going to direct the air down the back of the helmet here and on the back there's exhaust vents at the rear . So as you ride low pressure is created behind your head and its going to draw the warm air out of the helmet which is a really great way of keeping you cool and comfortable in warm weather. On the inside you have a silver cool moisture wicking fabric , so this material is moisture wicking kind of like how a sport shirt would be its going to keep you nice and cool and comfortable in warm conditions it is removable i did want to point out there are large openings right where your ears would go where you could fit speakers so if you use a communication system or if you just use speakers if you have a CB set up on your bike that's a really nice way to keep you entertained while you ride on long distance rides you can remove the cheek pads if you were to replace them . So you can see there's a couple of snaps and some Velcro and that comes right out its a contoured cheek pad it keeps you nice and comfortable , you can remove the entire interior ill just pop the back out here so you can see those air channels inside the shell there , there are plenty of channels for all that ventilation to get through to reach all parts of your head and that's called their advanced channeling ventilation system , so great value in this helmet its made by HJC so you know your getting good quality . You can check this out on our website.

    HJC IS -33 Helmets - Paul Kangas   MN Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Light on the head,cool, nice color
    Cons: [None]

    The helmet is very comfortable and very light. The color my wife got was wine and I got the Black.the sun shield is great and works fine. We looked at a lot of helmets and am glad that we got this one. the price was great and the shopping was very fast, they said it would be here on a Monday and Monday it was here. On a scale of 1 to 10 I would rate it at 10.5

    hjc is-33 helmet - rock42   TX Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: the helmet was a perfect fit and love the idea that i can take the face shield off during the hot texas summer, also helmet was light and comforable and has a retractable sun shield.
    Cons: there are no cons the price was the best i have seen on the internet anywhere

    helmet was perfect fit and the price was the best i found on the internet including ebay

    only for round heads - S Lindsey   GA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: great helmet and shields top quality
    Cons: not very good fit for people with heads that is more oval than round. tight fit causing numb forehead and back of head. sun shield could be a little darker

    well built helmet good padding inside helps to cut down on noise face shield and sun shield works great

    big dave - big dave   NY Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: excellent ventilation,soft inside liner,handy inside drop down sunshield,quick release front shield
    Cons: a little tight in the ears. But will soon stretch a little with wear

    a fine product would buy again Best price for that quality and options

    Highly versatile helmet - Thumpalong   TN Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: sunshade fit easy to put onoff with eyeglasses
    Cons: none

    Great helmet for the times you want an open face helmet. I love it for trail riding - the shield stays relatively fog-free and you can flip up the shield when stopped to prevent fogging. I bought a second one of these since I liked the first one so much and the sunshade had a lot to do with my decision. Great fit for me but based on experience I knew I needed an extra large even though the sizing chart called for a large based on head circumference.

    Wonderful helmet - HJC IS-33 Harley Style   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Resonable price, quiet and it fits great Works with the UCLEAR HBC-200 bluetooth
    Cons: None

    I have the Harley version of this helmet with UCLEAR HBC-200 blue tooth set up and this is the best combination I have ever ridden with, HBC-200 has no boom, beaming microphone speakers on each side to pick up my voice, which in this helmet is stellar in performance. I could always use a bit more volume at my age, but the voice is clear and easy to understand. I ride full dress Harleys with V&H exhaust on top of Harley big bore kits. This helmet keeps the noise out so I can enjoy longer rides with no problem. I connect with my iPhone 4 and Garmin 600 GPS with no problems or conflicts. Definitely recommend the IS-33 and the HBC-200 setup.

    HJC IS-33 - Sabrejack   DE Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Excellent fit personal, great finish, great face coverage in cool weather
    Cons: Somewhat noisy

    In the raised pinky world of Shoei and Arai, I have always had good experiences with HJC. On only one occasion did I ride a bike to the ground, and I remember my head bouncing uncontrollably on the pavement until I came to rest. The helmet performed perfectly, protecting my noggin and really, was still usable even then, although scraped up grandly. Of course, I replaced that helmet the next day but kept the damaged one as a reminder. The faceplates are very easy to remove for cleaning or replacement and the interior sun shade also but a little less so. My head, and let me stress this... I can only speak for mine as everyone's shape and dimensions are different, always seems to have a perfect fit with extra large HJC's. I also have a few other HJC's including modular which I use in cold weather. But the face shield on this model does a fine job of blocking cool air. However, I wouldn't want to use it in very cold weather without neck covering. In warm weather, just don't close the shield all the way... there are several detente positions for that. All in all, the price is great and the product seems to be as good as it gets. I'll be getting another when this one has lived out its life.

    Victory Rider - Edward P   MI Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Very comfortable and functional
    Cons: None

    I have found this helmet to be comfortable from extended rides down to 33 degrees F, and upwards to mid 80s, while riding my Victory Vision. I also have installed a Chatterbox XBI2, and the up fit was super easy

    Jay  
    Had this helmet over a year now and 14,000 miles later it is still comfortable. Hardly any noise and I installed a Scala G-4 set in it also. Great air flow when vents are open, warm in the winter with the face shield down. Order this product and you will be satisfied!!!!

    JakeDVolesik  
    Love the helmet.. No problems with it. Wife just ordered one too for her Xmas gift from the kids. Highly recommend this helmet

    VrodJoe  
    Sounds like someones helmet is too loose. I have no wind shield on my V-Rod and my helmet is completely stable with a great fit. It's also cool during the hot Texas Days. This is a great 3/4 helmet; highly recommend this one!

    very nice helmet - fubyoyo   KS Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: good fit, love the integrated sunshield
    Cons: sunshield could be a little bit longer, hang closer to nose

    I bought a pair of these for me and my girlfriend. Fittment was spot on and the integrated sunshield is a plus...no need to wedge sunglasses in helmet over ears. Only thing i have a slight issue with is the sunshield could hang a little closer to the nose. the bottom appears right in your field of view when using, but other than that an excellent piece of equipment

    hjc is33 - di95891   TN Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: cost, peripheral vision, tinted shield is easy to work
    Cons: shield lifts at higher speeds

    Very pleased with comfort and appearance. Tinted shield is easy to manipulate, ventilation is good. My only complaint is the shield lifts if you are like me and wof occasionally.

    HJC IS-33 Helmets - Tom   NJ Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Auto flip up sun visor & clear face shield
    Cons: None

    Used this helmet for a trip from NJ to Tennessee on a trip in June 2013. Rode better than 200 miles in heavy rain & some small hail. Helmet worked great. Never would have made it without it.. Good protection from the elements. Built in sun visor is a big plus, very nice for sun when needed. My regular helmet is a half shell, but I will always take this one now for long trips when I might encounter bad weather.

    Great helmet - Judson   AL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great fit, light weight, sun visor, ventilation
    Cons: noise, not much

    I bought an IS33 for myself and my wife since our helmets are getiing really old. I had to get an XXL when I normally wear XL, but that is minor. Just keep it in mind. This helmet fits great, is much quieter than I was expecting, and the visor is excellent. Just the thing for someone who wears glasses. The venting is much better than my old CL12, and the visibility is excellent. So much so that it was a little unnerving. I was so used to the old helmet restricting my view that it took me a little while to feel safe with such a wide view. CompAcc delivered quickly too

    HJC helmet - harold Lambert   FL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Nice quality. Neat visor system.
    Cons: [None]

    Great helmet for a reasonable price.

    good helmet for the money - Ray   MA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Fit, internal sun visor.
    Cons: none

    I have other HJC helmets and have not been disappointed. The IS-33 is no exception.Size chart said I was on the high side of large so I ordered an XL. The fit was snug at the start but comfortable. I'm sure it will loosen up a bit. The helmet is pretty quiet.I'm happy with it.

    Great Helmet - Fran   FL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: [None]
    Cons: [None]

    Very comfortable helmet, lightweight with nice feature of shade that comes down and can retract automatically. Wish the shade was just a little bit longer as it barely comes below my sight line with glasses, but other than that, extremely happy with this purchase.

    Quality 34 Helmet - Tony P.   AZ Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Well made, light weight
    Cons: A little tight

    Bought this helmet to use while riding a Gold Wing and wanted to use Communications speakers and mic. Helmet is well made as all HJC helmets seem to be. Installation of J&M speaker system very easy and fit the Helmet with no alterations. Good product at a good pric.

    nice,but not perfect - kawvulcan   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: sunshield, lightweight, flip up visor
    Cons: tight at forehead, sunshield too light

    my last helmet was an HJC and a x-large size, it fit perfectly, this one is tight on the forehead and actually hurts after awhile. Although I feel a larger size helmet would be too loose. Other than that it is lightweight. I love the flip up sunshield even though it isn't dark enough for a sunny day. The flip up main shield is nice and easy to put up at low speeds and stoplights. If they could just fix the fit and darken the sunshield the helmet would be perfect. After 2 other HJC helmets that were great I am a bit disappointed.

    Bought a flat black for myself and a anthracite for my wife, after riding for many years wearing half helmets, l was really surprised at how well the helmets fit. l have no complaints at all and have had no problem with buffering from the wind from my windshield. The thing with wind buffering with this style of helmet is the top of the windshield height needs to be at the center of the nose when seated or you will get more buffering from the wind than if you wearing a half or beanie style helmet.

    Zac  
    I'd just like to note that I tried these on recently and they look like a winner. I have a thin face and normally wear a small but the medium feels so good I think I'll get a large. But first I need to try them again with glasses on.

    I purchased this helmet in Wine Berry. The fit and finish is very good, the color is beautiful. The shields and vents work well, mechanically a very sound unit. I have one complaint though, it's much less aerodynamic that I would have expected. I ride a 2009 Harley Ultra Classic with the stock windshield. If I flip out the fairing vents to have air flow on me always needed for these hot Texas summers the helmet buffets so bad that I almost can't see. This happens above 40 MPH. It vibrates and shakes so much that every thing in front of me is blurry, and even worse to the side of you when you turn your head. You can hardly focus. When I close the fairing vents it's not so bad, but it does still shake. I don't know if this is normal with this unit or whether it's just my particular set up. I have not been on a bike without a windshield yet but will try it out on my daughter's Sportster to see how it works there. I will follow up when I do. Other than this vibration it's a great unit. I still wear it because my flip up Nolan is just to hot for summer here. I'll be purchasing a shorty soon to see if that works better.

    IS-33 - ricksr   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: comfort, internal sun shield.
    Cons: wind noise, clear shield vision distortion.

    i'm 6.4 and I ride behind the windshield of a gl1800 and the wind is minimal. But for some reason these helmets transform the wind noise into a high pitched sound. I doesn't matter wether the shields up or down. I have more wind noise interference than with a Bell Mag-8 or even a shorty helmet. It's odd and we can't figure out what part of the helmet causes the disturbance. We do like the helmets and will keep them. Just have to get used to the wind noise.

    Doctare  
    Nice helmet. Got it to for a lighter summer helmet as a birthday present. Nice and light, really wide view. I wish I could get an inner shied that was darker. The stock Light Smoke is way too light. I don't want to change the shield as I ride in changing light situations and prefer the IS to handle that.

    Forehead pain  
    Love the helment, but after about an hour of use it gives me a severe pain right at the hairline on top of my forehead. I can get some bit of relief by pushing on the back of the helmet to relieve the pressure at that point.

    daily rider  
    i'm a daily commuter and as such i like this helmet, however one of my primary motivations for acquiring a helmet with an inner shield was to have a sun shield when riding into the sun. unfortunately this inner shield when deployed obscures my vision. so i don't use it. too, like another reviewer by forehead pain on longer rides forehead pain is very distracting. we no doubt have more oval shaped heads and need to find a helmet designed to accommodate such.

    Bad Sizing - Larry Ardison   TX Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Good colors and good basic design
    Cons: Bad sizing.Quality control.

    I have three XXL HJC helmets that fit me just fine one 12 helemt, one 34, one full helmet. I ordered a XXL HJC -IS 33. It was so tight is was painfull getting it off. It was not a true HJC XXL.How can that be

    The sizing information is provided by the manufacturer and does not guarantee a perfect fit. However, we are happy to assist you with any needed exchanges.

    Note: the RPHA-Max seems to run a little smaller due to the thick padding and smaller overall shell design. Most size exchanges have been to up a size. So if you are on the fence. We recommend thinking about going up a size to start. However, please keep in mind the padding will break in some and a helmet that is a little tight vs. too loose for safety.
